One of the most interesting news stories i've read about the suicides in Japan was posted recently on the Japan Today site. Aside from pointing out that the most popular method of suicide in that country is hanging (in contrast to the impression one might get from news coverage that the most favored method uses carbon monoxide), there's an interesting blurb by psychiatrist Takahashi about women being "physiologically better equipped to resist the suicidal impulse than men." I'm not quite sure what that means; does it mean that female bodies are actually more robust than males?
